Current Conference
 Abstract Submission and application submission has closed for Recovery of Biological Products XVI Conference. 
The Recovery of Biological Products XVI co-chairs are excited to present the scientific program of the meeting to be held in Rostock, Germany from July 27-31, 2014. Under the theme of “Exploring the Boundaries to Recovery Science” we will take conference attendees on a journey from solutions to today’s issues to a vision for Recovery in 2050. Keynotes will connect all presentations to a daily theme, which is explored via oral presentations, posters, and workshops.
